This weekend was one of those times. As I’ve said before, I do not document everything I eat on this blog. Sometimes I feel like I only cover 50 percent of what I eat in a given day! Though I briefly touched on my breakfast yesterday and my dinners over the weekend, I didn’t document the bazillions of cookies I ate, my latest obsession with coconut butter fingers or the nearly half of a container of cream cheese icing I consumed on Friday.
Truth be told, this weekend I felt like my ratio of healthy eating to unhealthy eating was 15 percent healthy, 85 percent unhealthy. Not so good!
But, what is good, is that I’ve recognized this pattern. It has been creeping up on me for a while now. Unhealthy weekend eats. I need to revisit my own tips for maintaining healthy eating on the weekend. Easier said than done, huh?
What I hope will keep me on a healthy-eating track is remembering how I feel after eating crap-tastic food all weekend. I am left feeling lethargic, bloated and just plain crabby!
It never ceases to amaze me that what I eat not only affects how I feel physically, but how I feel mentally as well. It’s no fun feeling drained. Fueling my body with nutritious foods makes me feel alive, energetic, healthy and happy. That should be motivation enough to remember that my body runs better on nutritious foods.
I’m feeling better already today after eating a healthy breakfast and a veggie-packed lunch.
My mid-day meal included a veggie bacon sandwich served on a whole wheat sandwich thin with chive and onion cream cheese, spinach and tomato slices.
On the side I enjoyed a sliced orange bell pepper.
Oh veggies, I missed you this weekend.
Upcoming Wedding Q&A Post
I’ve received quite a few emails containing questions about our wedding, how we handled the planning process and more. I figured I would compile these questions into one big wedding Q&A post!
